Much of southwestern New Mexico is considered "high desert". Our elevation is 5,000 feet. We are nearly as far south as Tucson, Arizona. Grant County New Mexico is still a very rural area, with farming and cattle ranching being a major part of the economy. Part of the Heritage "Hooker Ranch" became the Double E Ranch and, until they retired, Debbie and Alan Eggleston ran Texas Longhorn cattle on nearly 30,000 acres along the edge of the Gila National Forest and Gila Wilderness area for 22 years. Little has changed in the pristine landscape over the past 150 years. With it's headwaters in Piños Altos, New Mexico, northeast of Double E Ranch and just outside the Town of Silver City, Bear Creek runs through Double E Ranch and empties into the Gila River along the southwestern border between New Mexico and Arizona. Unexpectedly, you will find our hidden valley at the southern end of Bear Creek Canyon.
